A surprising case has come out of Odisha. Here the challan of a traffic policeman was cut. That too is not small, full 2000 rupees. In fact, under the COVID-19 security rules, every human being is required to wear a mask. However, he was doing his duty without a mask, blowing off the Corona Guidelines.
On this matter, the police wrote in a tweet, ‘After being brought to our notice, we imposed a fine of Rs 2000 for not putting a mask on our traffic constable. He paid a fine as a responsible citizen. All of you should always wear a mask or pay a fine. Apart from this, there is no other option.
On being brought to our notice, we have fined our own Traffic constable ₹2000 for not wearing mask. And he, as a responsible citizen has paid. Wear Mask always; Or Pay the fine.

The Chief Minister of Odisha has also appealed to follow the COVID rules regarding Corona. He recently said in one of his messages, “If people put on masks and keep distance between each other, then the state can avoid stringent steps like lockdown, shutdown or curfew”.
